Stars of Orion (the Hunter) and Taurus (the Bull) over an ancient lonely gate in Yazd, central desert of Iran. The gate is the only standing remains of an ancient city. Also notable in the image is planet Mars at top right visible close to Hyades star cluster; the prominent “V” shape group of stars which represent the Bull’s face. Oshin Zakarian/
